Bird was ~1 mile up Big Trees trail: after emerging from a patch of redwoods, a solitary flowering manzanita is on the immediate left border of trail, 20 yards past this the trail turns sharply to the left at a corner with lots of sapling madrones. The bird was seen here, moving between several live oaks and then downslope away from trail.
